republican, neither is george w. bush. dick cheney on foreign policy is exact opposite what tea party republicans feel. they have a much more isolationist might be too strong but certainly more of a restrained view of american role in the world and cheney believes in a very robust national security out there. they are on such opposite sides. even on other issues. cheney obviously is an economic conservative. he also said in some of these meetings deficits don't matter. he was strong as deficit hawk. i think this is a new kind of tea party. he's trying to adapt himself to it. he agrees with some of the things they say about obama care and current administration. his daughter is obviously running for senate in wyoming. >> ezra. >> in terms of the party cheney wielded inside the bush white house, one way the book is portrayed is george w. bush was in charge. the impression i've taken from it so far was actually that cheney was very, very good at being publicly subservient, sub missive but he was an incredibly good staffer. he understood how power worked in the white house, key roles. he

republicans are going to do right now to this president what democrat did to george w. bush about the same point. not only raise the credibility question but competence question. >> i want to talk more about that in our next block. but just on obama care, i guess one benefit for the administration it certainly knocked off the front page all the messups with the web site. this is not really the way you want to go about it. >> that's not a good thing. i think it's a problem to conflate all these things together. these are really separate issues. but if the boss is going out and over and over saying something that somebody in administration knows not to be true, that's a very different animal. and i think at that point, absolutely someone has to step forward and say, hey, you know, you keep saying this one thing. [ overlapping speakers ] >> one at a time. >> his staff is keeping him in a bubble of ignorant bliss? >> i don't believe it. >> or they're claiming to be keeping him in a bubble of ignorant bliss. neither of the two are good. >> andrew you're saying? >> i would just love politics tha

pursued politics. and then george w. bush. >> host: in the family, you write for those who study the fault line, the campaign of 1980 is instructive. because to dynastic sons chose to challenge their party's front runners and those two presumptive heirs base their candidacies solely on their sense of entitlement. >> guest: i am fascinated, not just by the study of power, but i am fascinated by the class system in this country. it isn't quite what it is in the united kingdom. it is more unspoken here. we don't night people. we don't place the earls here, the barringer, the dukes. no, but we do. and that kind of upper class, middle class, lower class permeates our society and it fascinates me. it's a form of self entitlement and it's a form of discrimination. and i like to see -- not that i like what i'm fascinated to see how it plays out. >> host: in the family you write that the legacy of prescott alcoholism became his destructive to the dynasty as denying its existence was to his immediate failure. prescott bush alcoholic? >> guest: and his son, jonathan bush, took umbrage when this book

. everybody has forgotten, by the way, that when president george w. bush, a republican, put that medicare part d drug program in, it was more unpopular than the health care law and they had terrible problems with the computers. >> congresswoman, it was eight years ago that the federal government rolled out medicare part d, a prescription drug benefit, and it was the first time that medicare was launching into this exclusive private health insurance plan. only 21% of americans at that time had a favorable understanding of what medicare part d was and now people would think they couldn't live without it. without proper enhancements as we live and learn. so do you think as we stand right now with the fact that the president was re-elected on obama care and it passed both houses and also vetted through the supreme court, do you believe that all americans deserve access to affordable health care? >> absolutely every american should have access to affordable health care. every american should be able to provide that for their families. but you know when we're comparing medicare part d to this m

. everybody's forgotten when president george w. bush, a republican, put that medicare part d drug program in, it was more unpopular than the health care law and they had terrible problems with the computers. our side is not so ideological. instead of bashing and scream being how incompetent they were, we tried to help people understand the law and make it work. >> clinton begins another marathon day today at 10:15 in norfolk. democrats sweep the state in virginia and republicans get clobbered and it sends a real message to the state of the republican party and if republicans write that off, they do so at their own peril. democrats tried the same ignoring the signs that became the 2010 republican wave starting this virginia in 2009. so far president obama is yet to do a campaign event that was supposed to happen in the shut down, but shut down got in the way. could happen this weekend. hillary clinton will be raising money this week in california. kentucky senator rand paul will speak for ken cuccinelli. he has a libertarian on the ballot and this man in virginia is taking votes from cuccinel

much better. everybody hates george w. bush. this is all we need for a brand new world. little did we know while he was giving that speech in berlin his people were bugging every office. think about the damage this has done and this is one more of those bush/cheney programs that this administration has taken to ridiculous lengths. >> the real world implications is massive. the damage has been done that's not just political but mic economically. the idea that the president doesn't know about these things over and over again -- i imagine people think it's a better explanation than saying he did know. that's hard for me to see how it's a positive. if that is true that's alarming. given that they are arguing this wholesale review we have not heard a revamp of this from the president. he made his speech, he made his press conference. he needs to go back and explain exactly what's happening. these revelations keep coming and more will continue. >> one more story before we go to break. over the weekend the affordable care act main website went into a bit of an overhaul. >> that's good. i sho

with different demographic groups, what george w. bush did was able to take his message, i won latinos by a big margin or did better with african-americans than a normal republican candidate would do and make that case in a presidential bid. >> mark murray, we'll keep track as far as clinton and these appearances in the next few days. >>> both new york times and wall street journal report immigration reform stands to become the next issue that divides the republican party, following the infighting over the government shutdown. the times reports a push to bring immigration to the house floor led by business executives and evangelical leaders threatens the party and could have a noticeable effect on campaign contributions before the midterm elections. the article goes on to indicate, several republican executives and donors parts of a lobbying blitz coming to capitol hill said they were considering withholding or had already decided to withhold future financial support to republican lawmakers. they believe are obstructing progress on immigration, the article is the work of eric lip ton who joins

in that country in one month. dana perino was the press secretary under george w. bush, the 43rd, president bush, 43, and this was happening under bush 43rd. >> i suppose. i don't get the outrage. i don't. i can mott believe the white house said we're going to have to curtail our operations, our intelligence, because they were embarrassed over a report. there's a reason they call it top secret. it is top secret, and i bet you any of these countries that are in any of this news stores are trying to do the sir same thing to the united states of america. i don't think we should cut off our options. >> that we monitored the phone calls of world leaders is okay. >> fine with me. i fine it very imapplause able -- >> who do we think we are monitoring the phone calls -- what if germany were -- >> you think they're not trying? >> i don't know if they're trying. >> you think the chinese aren't trying? absolutely. >> we're not -- we're on the same team here. >> yeah. >> what i'm asking is, what would make us think it's okay to listen into the phone calls of the leader of germany. >> what would make is thin

about that. everybody has forgotten, by the way, that when president george w. bush, a republican put that medicare part d drug program in, it was more unpopular than the health care law and they had terrible problems with the computers. >> over the weekend, yet another problem emerged with the site. a critical data center was shut down that's managed by verizon's terremark. it all comes as jeffrey zients promised will be problem-free by the end of november. let me bring in carl bernstein and msnbc managing editor dafna linzer. good morning. >> good morning. >> don't you love bill clinton? oh, that computer thing, it will get fixed. but is he right? should we have expected that the problems that we've seen, carl, would happen? >> no, it's a colossal screw-up. at the same time that does not mean that the legitimacy of the affordable care act is undermined or should be undermined boy this. look, we've got to look at the fact that the republican party has made the central issue of its existence the idea that really health insurance for all people they're against. it's a ba

intelligence committee. do you think the former president george w. bush didn't know? >> i don't know. but i think he might have. i had access, sat in with him on obviously classified briefings, the daily presidential briefing, and i don't want to give anything away that i shouldn't, but i'm not, you know, there were obvious moments when there was information that could only have come from an intercept. we would be let's say preparing for a meeting with a foreign leader, and they would say we have reason to believe the foreign leader has on his mind, it intends to raise at this meeting the following points or following objections to u.s. policy. that could be an intercepted leader or intercept of one of his advisors but there is clearly penetration of a foreign government's internal communications. i don't know. maybe they never revealed that fact in their briefings of president obama but it would be hard, if they had that information and didn't, it's a little hard to understand. >> it's hard to believe that they wouldn't tell the president of the united states, especially as he goes into a

the george w. bush administration. he said it must be independent of outside political forces. >> the f.b.i.'s reputation for integrity is a gift given to every new employee by those who went before, but and it is gift that must be protected and earned every single day. >> during his time in the attorney general's office, comey blocked a wire topping authorization. >> congress will hear testimony from survivors of the benghazi attack. in a tweet lindsey graham said: some republicans are not satisfied with the information they have heard so far about the deadly 2012 attack on a u.s. facility in libya. >> a suspected drone strike killed two members of an al-qaeda linked group in sow mail i can't. the two were struck while in a a car. the men reportedly belonged to al shabab, blamed for the deadly kenya mall attack. drones have been used before in that area. >> members of congress are taking a closer look at the obama administration's drone strike policy today. in fact, they've invited a pakistani family that was victimized by a strike to share their story, but they first spoke to aljazeer

to sympathize with the predictment. president obama came to power after two terms of george w. bush that did not improve american global standing. at the same time, the united states, as you said, remains the predominant military power, no question about that. the united states remains a predominant economic power. that's what putin basically was talking about at the forum. in terms of the roll of the financial system, we basically build it. we continue to run it. everybody depends upon us, including the russians and chinese. we, also, lucky to have adversaries and difficult partners who hardly could claim that with the united states, and none of them are attractive and more attractive system of government to follow, all of them have serious economic difficulties, other leading emerging markets, which looked like big winners a couple years ago, more than the share of problems, and the united states is, in my view, is a leading power and remains in my view the exceptional power. the problem is that even if you are the exceptional power, you have to act responsibly, and in the purpose, and i t

. they don't want you to mention george w. bush. he gave us record deficits and have taken a while to dig out and people understand that obama inherited a bunch of problems. we have been patient with him trying to rebuild sxwr we a. >> we are talking about obama care. this has nothing to do with president bush, this is this president. >> why his numbers have been high despite some of the problems. i agree with you right now. this glitchy rollout has been harmful to him with people who like him and i think the overly broad assurances where he says nobody is going to suffer, we're only going to have winners under obama care. not one single loser. that is an overly broad assurance and it has come back to bite him and he now has problems with people who actually like him who are feeling frustrated. >> it is earlier you brought up the notion of the self-inflicted issues. some something we were watching last night david gergen four-time working in the white house david gergen here made this observation. let's roll it. >> i think they came in thinking that the white house was essentially a political

the approach here. kind of reminds us of george w. in 1998 when he was running for reelection as governor. but was it really a reelection for governor that was looking at an election for the presidency? >> well, very much difference in texas than in new jersey. texas is solid in our column every cycle. reliable. rick perry's the governor, one of the longest governors there. new jersey's not in our column. even when the governor weighed in on the senate race, we couldn't get it in our column. he's a unique politician in a unique place in history. he brings a lot to the republican party, to the table. but when you leave new jersey, colorado, south carolina, florida, tennessee is not new jersey. so once you move to that bigger stage, people are going to start examining -- >> how will he do that? >> that's going to be difficult. he is a charismatic individual. he's going to win what the demographics are, no matter. once he's a competitor and moves to the next level and once you've been on a presidential campaign and the vans fill up and follow you and you have the real reporters with you, thi
